Congenital uterine anomalies are common but their effect on reproductive outcome is unclear. We conducted a systematic review to evaluate the association between different types of congenital uterine anomaly and various reproductive outcomes. 

A classification of congenital uterine anomalies predicting pregnancy outcomes

To evaluate pregnancy outcomes in women with uterine anomalies by applying a method for diagnosing and classifying congenital uterine malformations.

Congenital Uterine Anomalies and Uterine Rupture.

A case study of a woman with a congenital uterine anomaly leading to spontaneous rupture of her unscarred uterus remote from term is presented.

Impact of concomitant intrauterine adhesions on pregnancy outcomes and obstetric complications in women with a septate uterus

To explore the impact of concomitant intrauterine adhesions on pregnancy outcomes and obstetric complications in women with a septate uterus, a large number of studies have found IUAs to be positive predictors of pregnancy outcomes.

Pregnancy in an anomalous uterus: A case report

Cesarean section was done for breech presentation and it was an incidental intra operative finding of unicornuate uterus with rudimentary horn, which is a risk factor for preterm, low birth weight and malpresentations.

Association of a unicornuate uterus with adverse obstetric outcomes: A retrospective cohort study

Women with a UU have a higher risk of preterm birth, breech presentation, and cesarean delivery, and understanding of the subdivisions of PTBs and indications for cesAREan delivery might help clinicians when counseling women with pregnancy complicated by a U U.

The effects of chronic endometritis on the pregnancy outcomes

Chronic endometritis (CE) influences the clinical outcomes of assisted reproductive technology. However, the effect of CE on the pregnancy outcome is still unknown.

The pathophysiology of the septate uterus: a systematic review

Little is known about the pathophysiology underlying the increased risk for impaired reproductive outcomes in women with a septate uterus and the need for further research into this issue.

It is shown that although these disorders are generally not lethal, they critically impact the patient's reproductive health and Reproductive endocrinologists and infertility specialists must be considered as active parts of the interdisciplinary treatment team for such patients.
